“We are a school where PSHE is ingrained in our motto- ‘Care, Grow, and Shine’- it is really about ensuring every child is happy and that they will go on to learn and be prepared for the outside world. We see every child as an individual with a different talent. We want to seek out their passion so each child can be successful.”
